Tried several times here with the latest Windows build of Evolution and
it copied every time. At one time I have 5 copies of spam in my spam folder
that I had "moved" from other folders.

Er, isn't that the point of subscriptions? Subscribe to the folders you
want to see, don't subscribe to the folders you do not.

Mine checks for mail in all the folders I specify to check for new mail.
Again, that's kind of the point. Why would I want to check for new mail in
folders that would never see new mail? Seems counter-productive to waste time
checking folders you know won't get new mail.

I would wager that is a configuration problem in the case of not seeing
mail. As for the latter *shrug* though this looks promising:
